Eron Harris will require season-ending surgery on his right knee, Michigan State announced Sunday afternoon.

Harris, a senior, injured the knee in a scary moment during the Spartans' loss Saturday at No. 16 Purdue. The Indiana native, who was stretchered off the court, suffered the injury when he landed awkwardly following a shot in the lane in the second half.

"We all feel absolutely awful for Eron," Tom Izzo said in a team release. "As I said last night, I couldn't ask for more than what Eron has give me and this program.

"It's cruel to see a senior's career end this way. If there is a silver lining, it's that we expect Eron to be able to make a full recrovery and pursue a basketball career after graduation."

Harris was averaging 10.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.
